First time mom thoughts at 2 am:
"When I've been having contractions every 10 minutes all day, and then they wake me up at night, that has to be the 'real thing', right?"
Got up around 2 with the most uncomfortable contractions I've had so far. Timed a few; watched them go from 10 minutes apart to 5 minutes. Listened to my iPod while waiting for them to either stay at 5 minutes or get closer together. Thought briefly, "We could have a baby today!" Watched them go back to 10 minutes apart. Went back to bed around 4:30. Woke up 20 minutes later with another one. Knew then that my body was playing a cruel joke on me. Didn't have any more until 7am. Discouraged. Irritated.
Trying to go back to sleep.
